  • Scattered Severe Storms Tonight…

    The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 11p.

    Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 4.49.21 PMDamaging straight line winds and large hail are of biggest concern as these scattered strong to severe storms continue to advance southeast.  This is all in association with a cold front moving into a very warm, moist, and unstable air mass.

    Forecast radar this evening continues to show a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms advancing into central IN during the evening hours.

    3We’ll turn much quieter during the overnight as the cold front passes through the region.  A northwest wind shift will allow a drier air mass to slip into central IN come Tuesday morning.

    A quite Tuesday is needed, as more active times loom come Wednesday…
